Final frames from my first visit to Harris and Lewis in November 2016. There are lots of pre-trip processes I do mainly around maps which I love. Ordinance Survey Explorer paper maps kickstarted my love of the outdoors. In Cubs I learned map reading. In Geography I learned mapping countours and detail. Aged 15 I learned route planning as my friends and I and cycled Scotland’s Youth Hostels. So now I start with a map and write notes on it before I go and update with what I found. “Great rock formations”, “Sea stacks”, “Great hot chocolate” all make for useful information. And i will return to these islands.
